A super experience that becomes even more magical with Nicholas and Daniel. You manage to visit Ortigia and they also leave you time to visit the places and take some photos. My child who is fond of bells was satisfied and thanks to the two guides we have seen many. Thanks guys you were super

We arrived in Syracuse port by cruise ship in over 36C and were very pleased to be met and driven there as agreed. Everything went well, including the communication beforehand. The tour itself was very nice, interesting and we had the opportunity to stop for photos at any time.

The ideal way to visit the island under the July sun, with the help of a young, prepared, passionate and easy-going guide! How to have 4 laughs while learning the little secrets of the city
